slight sub mucosal swelling at 32cm?

Hi guys, been for a gastro endoscopy today, only ever had heartburn once a couple of months ago, lasted a couple of weeks, not had any since all feels normal, went for the endoscopy anyway expecting nothing and all was normal apart from slight\small sub-mucosal swelling at 32cm, the doc didn't really furnish me with alot of info, said he took a sample from the overlying mucosa for tests which he said will most likely come back normal, if normal he would recommend referring for ultrasound EUS in a different hospital, I think I think he said it could just be fat but I wasn't really with it after sedation, I have not got a clue what any of this means, any ideas? I suppose it could be cancer but wanted reassurance it could be something else benign? I did have alot of burning/acid reflux for 2 weeks solid, well actually had it for a week then got put on lansoprazole for 2 weeks then had another week of hyperacidity when I came of it! That was all a month ago, been fine since.

I understand the sub mucosal layer is under the mucosal layer, how could the doc tell that from a camera?

Any help appreciated while I worry in the meantime, to top it all off I'm already battling prostatitis and had a massive reaction to ciprofloxacin, nicknamed being a floxie, tendon, muscle and neurological problems since taking it, also added to the heartburn and every cipro pill felt like it got stuck and burned in my esophagus, linked?

Thanks guys!
